Some of my Games (Part V) - A Tale of Three Diagrams

 Having annotated some of my better games here, it's probably high time to show a not-so good game. Before I provide the actual moves, let me show some snapshots from throughout the game.

After Black's eleventh move; White is slightly better.

After White's seventeenth move; Black is slightly better.

After Black's twenty-second move; Black is winning. 

Okay, so what exactly happened here? In a matter of eleven moves I went from a comfortably better to lost.
